Its been a while!

 Morning all!

I know, it's been a while since my last post and in fact it was my mum that has instructed me I need to update my blog!! So just for you mum, I have taken heed and updated! 

I have just got back from a 3 week holiday in Thailand which was absolutely amazing. It has been a bit of a shock to the system to come back to all this rain I can tell you! What with me being on holiday and busy with work before that, I have not really done a great deal of crafting for the past 4-6 weeks, so today I've got a few cards to show you that I made for fathers day but never actually got around to sharing with you!

I made 2 of a very similar design, one for my dad and one for my father in law, just changed to colour ways and accessories.

This was the one for my father in law. He supports Leeds United so I used  their colour's...

I just changed the colour's for my Dad's card and added brads to the ends of the banners....

and here they are both together...


CS: SU Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy Crumb Cake, Island Indigo, Whisper White and Very Vanilla
Stamps: SU Just Perfect Alphabet (Retiring), Pennant Parade, Happiest Birthday Wishes (Retiring), SU Sanded Background stamp (Retired)

Tools: SU Petite Pennants Builder punch, SU Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Crumb Cake, Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo ink pads

Misc: Island Indigo Bakers twine, Island Indigo designer printed Brads
There are a few items used on this card that will be retiring this weekend. Since I last posted the new SU Autumn/Winter Catalogue was launched (Sep 1st 2012). The last chance list from the 2011-2012 catalogue is still active until 30th September so hurry if there is anything you want that is retiring. Excitingly the new 2012-2013 catty goes live from Monday 1st Oct and boy is it jammed packed with lots of fab new products. The new catty is 205 pages long, thats 73 extra pages on the last catalogue. As a demo I have been able to pre-order some of the new items in advance and I can assure you, you will not be disappointed. I know one of my friends and customers Elaine will love the new catty and I will be delivering hers in the next few days.

Well thanks for stopping by today. Hopefully now my holidays are out of the way I will have a bit more time for crafting and more things to show you.

Bye for now.

Hugs, Victoria ~x~
